Sunday Morning!

It’s Sunday morning. I don’t know about anyone else, but this is one of the most PEACEFUL days of my life.

I can count on the beauty of a quiet ride to Starbucks (Sunday morning routine is to get my Daddy breakfast and my coffee), and just to be alone w my thoughts of praise.

These past few weeks have been trying, traumatic, troubling yet triumphant. God won’t allow me to lose, because He created me in His own image…a winning image. I smile w the peace of God covering me and my loved ones, and I’m ever so grateful for His grace and mercy. He constantly stands up inside of me, when I’m at my weakest…and His arms have never been closed to me…that’s why I praise Him; because He’s already done enough! If He NEVERRRRRRR does another thing for me, I have 34–almost 35–yrs worth of blessings. I could be dead, on drugs, unemployed, transportation-less, homeless, hungry, poor, UNLOVED, alone…but I’m the opposite of ALL of those things. I have TOO MUCH to thank God for…

Spiritually Maturing w Every Keystroke,

My DIY Morning Fitness Routine

I have been reading up on workouts, trying to do different things, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I have to create my own little morning routine. And that’s fine!! As long as I am getting movement in, I will get to where I need to be. Of course, 2-3 days out of my week, I will do another kind of workout that involves cardio and some weight training, as muscle burns fat.

Here is what I plan to do each morning before work:

25 regular crunches
25 reverse crunches
10 pushups
25 jumping jacks
10 lunges
10 squats

(repeat for a total of 3 times)

I completed this routine this morning, and I feel refreshed. I need to be more committed to keeping my body mean and lean, because it’s so important to be healthy! I have reasonable activity of my limbs, so before I lose them, I will use them!

Have at it!
